With a well-filled order book, the Dutch Volkswagen importer can speak of a successful introduction of the ID. Buzz. Only the majority of the ordered cars concern the ID. Buzz Cargo, the van version. The question is how many private individuals are tempted to purchase an ID. Buzz. Sure, he triggers a lot of warm VW van feelings. At the same time, he requires a very well-filled wallet.

Range Volkswagen ID. Buzz

We have to admit it: the introductory versions 1ST and 1ST Max make the ID. Buzz a charming appearance. Although it is and remains essentially … a van. Unfortunately, the debutants are also quite pricey. There will be slightly more affordable implementation variants in the long term, but they will of course become less complete. We don’t expect an ID. Buzz comes with a smaller battery pack or a less powerful motor. So far, 77 kWh and a 204 hp electric motor are standard. The maximum official range is therefore 413 kilometers.
